Print multiply models

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print multiply models



I am new in the 3d world , I want to print 4 models but not in the same time (constant Z), I want to load the g code and to print 1 by 1 when the printer finish 1 to go to the other model is it possible? I attache the photo is just an example. I want to do this because when i try to print them in the middle and all in the same time afhter the 3 layer 1 piece get off from the 

platform and destroy the other models.

    You want to set the setting "print sequence" to "one at a time".  Note that it will not honor your request if the parts are too close together relative to your machine settings print head size.  And it will not honor your request if your parts are higher than the "gantry height" (also in machine settings).


    But these parts look plenty small enough so you may be lucky and not have to mess with your "machine settings".


    Also note that several plugins that rely on "layer height" have trouble with "one at a time" mode.  Such as the plugin "tweak at Z".  But most likely you don't use any plugins.


    You will know it worked because as you scroll through layer height in preview screen you will see it doing one part at a time.

    By the way, in general, with small parts like these, the quality will be much better if you print them all at once as one has time to cool while the other's print.  I even arrange them left to right in a line so that the fans on either side of the head cool the neighboring parts.


    You could easily print in pairs or triplets by putting 2 or 3 of these in a single STL file and choosing "one at a time" mode.


    If you are getting stringing between the parts it might make more sense to tackle that issue instead.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!
          • Thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
